Undergraduate Research

Conducting undergraduate research provides an opportunity to

  • Solidify knowledge gained in advanced (3000 or 4000 level) economics courses
  • Gain hand-on experience in economics
  • Improve one’s resume and application to graduate programs
  • Receive a strong recommendation letter from a faculty member

There are different ways students can get involved in the undergraduate research:

Here is a list with Funded Research Opportunities for Undergraduates. Most of these opportunities pay travel & most or all living expenses, plus stipends ranging from small to generous. 

If you are interested in conducting undergraduate research, please contact Dr. Piruz Saboury at psaboury2@uh.edu for more information.
